HC Deb 01 February 1995 vol 253 c749W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what new funds he proposes to assist special needs children; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Richards

Local authority expenditure on education, including provision for special needs children, is funded through the local government revenue settlement. It is for individual local authorities to determine how much is allocated to education, in the light of local needs and priorities.
